Wake up Fairhope, and Baldwin County, pay attention to what your local municipal government is telling you during the corona virus pandemic.
Fairhope has a CATALYST City Council and true to form, their message is one of self interest.
They are backed by developers, like Angelo Corte, Councilman Brown’s mentor. Mr Corte has not stopped work on Fly Creek apartments or has he shown any interest in his worker’s health.
The apartments at Fly Creek, behind Publix have not stopped work and some of those same workers are shopping at Publix, let that sink in.
Fairhope’s Mayor Wilson, was the first Mayor in Baldwin County that “implored” the Governor to enact an order to shelter in place.
The Mayor also stood tall and stern when it came to the canceling of Arts and Crafts.
That is leadership. It puts the interests and health of the community first.
Councilman Burrell and Brown, as well as the Art’s and Crafts sponsors, all wanted to “take a chance” and not cancel.
This would have been a horrible mistake. Dollars over lives should be the CATALYST motto.
Burrell flipped his vote in the end, due to public outrage.
Brown has doubled down, invoking God and abortion, not germane to the virus or “shelter in place”.
Robert Brown For Our Hometown
Curfew for Fairhope
The council has a teleconference meeting this afternoon to discuss the option of issuing a curfew for the City of Fairhope. I personally am not in favor of these measures for multiple reasons. I was also against the shelter in place order. While this pandemic, epidemic or whatever you want to call has led us where I never imagined, I am against any further restrictions on personal freedoms. I am voting against it.
The news I have been hearing is that we are beginning to turn in favor of “flattening the curve”. Even New York’s cases in the last 2 days have declined. According to one news source. Instead of the federal government issuing more stimulus money, why don’t they lift the closure of businesses to allow them to open up with the safe practices that were in place a month ago. Every entrepreneur’s business is essential to him/her and their families and employees. Open seating, half capacity whatever. Some will continue to stay home, some will go out. They will naturally gain momentum to get their business back on track as we continue to recover.
Were some of the measures we have taken as a city, state or country necessary? Depends on who you ask. Were lives lost, yes. And while as tragic as those deaths from this virus will be, over 850,000 were willingly aborted in 2017. The Corona is no where and never will be near those numbers.
God bless during this Holy Week. There is one that died for all of us!
Stay safe and keep your distance
So while the WORLD is suffering and many lives are lost every day the Jester is more concerned about money and defying science and common sense.
Brown is the April Fool.
In Alabama some citizens are participating a 100%, at the potential risk of others.
This is the same Brown who along with Boone and Burrell spent 2.65 million on recreation land, no one wanted, and then they leased the land for farming for 9000 dollars a year.
Guess what? This was a colossal mistake, because now Fairhope has had to adjust it’s budget by $2.65 million.
Brown also was on board to give away the triangle property that cost taxpayers $13 million.
THE JESTER | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE
The Jester is back and now he wants to give away 106 acres of municipal land to Weeks Bay. The very same Jester who used his elected position for personal gain by securing the Fairhope Art Center…
This is the worst city council that Fairhope has had since it’s founding and three people keep taking credit.
HONEY BEES | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE
he Fairhope Council is made up of all Catalyst candidates. Three bees, Burrell, Boone and Brown, who have all used their elected office for personal gain, are going for the honey, again.
However it takes the whole council to operate a criminal enterprise.
CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE
Fairhope being run as a Criminal Enterprise? WATCH UNTIL MINUTE 2:07–9:
Nothing stopped Councilman Brown from using his office for personal gain. The council just held it’s nose, put their fingers in their ears and looked the other way.
DOCUMENTS – THE RIPP REPORT – WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY
Backstory Podcast @BackstoryPodcast Fairhope City Councilman Robert Brown has been defending his contract with the Eastern Shore Art Center since the publication of: Backstory Podcast @
Mr Brown has always said he had permission from the Ethics Commission, he did not, that is a lie.
Mr Brown said he was one of many bids.
Another lie, he was the ONLY bid.
He used his council position and his position as board member of the Art Center to personally enrich himself.
A complaint has been filed with the Attorney General, it will now be filed with the Mobile FBI and Alabama Ethics Commission
Council Brown wants to talk about God and Abortion to deflect from his own actions. He has used his office for personal gain and now he advocating a policy that could exacerbate an already bad situation. This is what is referred to as a christian hypocrite.
Brown from our home town is not only fleecing Fairhope, he is giving his own constituents bad and dangerous advise. Is this the example we want our Junior Council or our kids to emulate??
Fairhope needs candidates for city council, all 5 seats.
Qualifications are July 7 through 21 with the election August 26th.
Please consider public service and vote out all CATALYST candidates.
I know of two who plan on running. We really do need civic minded people. I did not know Mr. Brown built the soccer field itself. I had always heard he built the concession stands…at least ge bragged openly he did. He built a obnoxious house with all that public monies. This is a bad look for fairhope in 2020, god forbid 1980. Keep after these bad people Ripp.

Why should I move, we have been here for generations. It is scallywags and carpetbaggers that are ruining this town. Those of us that have been around for a while know how humble this town use to be, not a bunch people thinking they are something special. All these new people are de novo carpetbaggers and scallywags!
This coronavirus may not end up being as bad as we had thought (it’s still bad) but I know Jack and he was determined to have the Art Festival as scheduled. Why in the hell would anyone in this community actually support this kind of behavior and poor decision making unless they as well as Jack are all profiting from us. Can you actually believe there are people who supported his idea even days after the Governor closed the schools until possibly fall. How stupid can you be to support this unless you are just f$&king that greedy that you don’t mind putting our wonderful community at risk. All of you assholes will burn in hell. The sooner, the better. You Burrell supporters as well! Damn, y’all supporters are just plain idiots! Respond how you wish you catalyst assholes. I don’t give a F about stupidity and neither should the REAL caring people of Fairhope!
All of my fruends want Burrell gone.
Yesterday is not soon enough
That call corona the boomer remover
The municipal election is August 25th
Do you really think we need a curfew? Why make people stay in jail in their own homes?
I do agree with Brown’s comment about the Nuevo carpet baggers
There are some people who have moved in here thinking that they are better than us locals. I have known to tell a few of these people to go back to their [email protected] holes such as California, New York, and Illinois
I have been to these places and I know how trashed they are. I see these people as refugees
It is too bad that Brown has sold out to them
Yeah, yankee either go home or learn some manners
Like Jack Burrell? He’s a carpetbagging fool from hell and some of the slime treats him like he was born and raised here and the city is named after his parents. We do have a lot of this going on. I agree with Brown also except he does not qualify to make any good judgments about serving the people unless it puts money in his pocket. Both Burrell and Brown do not have the City’s best interests on their minds. Simply what can Fairhope do for them!! Brown, you been to gully lately?
Yeah, I get so piqued when I see people move in here and think that they are so great because they come from a big city up North. I ask them if their big city is so great then why did they move from there? They have no answer but I give them an answer: They moved because their city was trashed.
There is a guy who just moved in next door from a big city. I am going to take the initiative to teach that yankee some manners
I like that last sentence
Do ya think Mobile needs a curfew? If some people will not social distance and disregard any caution , then yes
We all need many 24 hr curfews from our Council!!! I can’t stand the 2 hours that I had to spend each week with the sorry liars to begin with. I can see why some (very few thank God) people turn their lives around and lie and steal from the good people of Fairhope. They have caught BBBvirus. And I’m not joking nor am I am laughing either!!!
Will be an entire new council
Your home is compared to a Jail???
Vote for me! I have been financed by the big developers so I won’t have to ask you for campaign contributions. I will work for the people – the “right” people, however
Let me call Catalyst for you
My girlfriend works with somebody who knows Burrell. It looks like Jack is the only council person who is going to run. If this turns out to be true he’s a dead man walking. It also means its time to run for real men and women with a backbone to run to help the city save itself from ruin. Any patriots in da house?
I would like to see this council run again and answer for what they have done
Totally agree. I’m pretty sure Robert and Jimmy are running. Kevin said early on this was his last term. Hope he hasn’t changed his mind. Heard Jay not running. Busy family.
Jack’s gotta go.
Jimmy ain’t running.
Bank execs will determine.
After April America is coming back and Fauci can infect himself. Instead of working for finding a real solution to coved, Fauci has prostituted himself to the media
Fauci is an incompetent person who has ruined this country. He needs to go back to the lab and stay out of politics
He has made the cure worse than the treatment
Just look back in the 1980’s and see what he recommended for AIDS
What has your sorry ass done to help with this pandemic beside run your mouth?Nothing!!! That’s exactly what I thought
Fauci failed us. He could have found an answer but he is too stupid
Let nature take care of the rest
Hey For Real, Cuss all you want but Darwin has the answer
Here is the run down:
1. Jay ROBinson.
Lawyer. Thinks he’s smart. Lazy.
Doesn’t know law. Has been caught thinking he’s smart, being lazy and pretending to know law. Is not running to concentrate on “practicing.”
2. Jay CONyours.
The banker. Pretends neutral. Cuts sweet loans for builders ruining Fairhope. Likely the least corrupt, but corrupt. Not seeking re-election due to professional courtesy stemming from too numerous bank complaints.
3. Daddy Boone. The trailer park slumlord. Son of his runs the failing machine. Gets a piece of every check cut by the city via kickback, bribe and payoff. Not running for re-election as voters and feds now aware of the criminal enterprise his extended family runs.
4. ROB Brown. From your hometown. Farts in the general direction of voters. Crass. Rude. Obnoxious. Fake Christian act down pat. Has built a mansion with ill gotten gains. All in 4 short years. Not running to avoid divorce.
5. JACK Burrell. Miss. State grad who dubiously lists his occupations as engineer and “sales”. Has remained council President for 6 long years. Enjoys quiet gulley strolls and ridiculing and teasing the mayor,a person he is jealous of.
The only one of the 5 corrupt cretins intending to perpetuate the multi-decade fraud.
Prediction: So goes Burrell’s impressive opponent…so goes Fairhope.
USMC1967 you are clever. Ha!
By the way if Burrell walks the gulley what time? I would LOVE to walk the gulley too
They do you dirty in fairhope. The council is a bunch of greedy hogs.
When I get through properly vetting anyone who runs for coincil or Mayor this go around, the people of Fairhope will know everything they should have known for many years. Cannot wait!!!!
